Singer and Songwriter Cina Soul is out with a new single titled “Killi me”. It seems the young musician is targeting unhealthy relationships with her 2019 release. From addressing cheating in her previous song “Ojorley”, Cina soul is taking on toxic relationships and domestic violence in this new track.
In the video to the track, Cina Soul and her on-screen partner demonstrates behaviors which not only put their relationships in jeopardy but are also damaging to their physical and mental well being. The constant emotional abuse from one partner transforms into physical abuse. Cina Soul in the video attacks her partner for something he had done and he reciprocates – leaving them both with bruises.
In her prelude she admits that being in an abusive relationship is not a healthy choice. The cycle is continous and by the end of the prelude she hits her lover with a stone. The epilogue however, Cina’s on-screen lover hits her with a stone and stands by her side whiles she bleeds. Cina Soul in “Killi Me” puts into perspective what people in toxic and abusive relationships go through. Also, it details what would happen to people in such relationships if their situation get out of hand.
She uses the “Killi Me” visuals to ask a question who wins when someone is an abusive relationship? The part of you that wants out of the relationship or the part that still wants to stay? In all the drama Cina Soul and her lover agrees they have been wrong in how they treated each other but they are finding it difficult to end their relationship because of their love.
We tell ourselves everytime that it’s the last time that it won’t happen again and then it does. I know you hurt me because I hurt you, I forgive you because I love you, everytime you break me I try to fix you but what happens in the end when I’m broken beyond repairs are some of the lyrics of the song.
